In the realm of Indian cinema, few names stand out like Zoya Akhtar and Reema Kagti. With a shared vision for storytelling and a penchant for pushing boundaries, these talented filmmakers are known for their unique and diverse approach to storytelling with tales from both the heartlands of the country to urban cities, acting and championing both ends of the spectrum. Now, as they gear up to release their latest project, "Made in Heaven 2," it is evident it is only them who can create such different cinematic worlds and ace them both, creating a fascinating juxtaposition of narratives that captivate audiences worldwide.

With Tiger Baby Films, Zoya Akhtar and Reema Kagti are championing two different ends of a spectrum with compelling and engaging stories, much ahead of the curve. Case in point being - ‘Dahaad’ and ‘Made in Heaven 2’. While ‘Dahaad’ is a gritty and intense drama about a father and son's tumultuous relationship, ‘Made in Heaven 2’ is a lighthearted and entertaining show about the lives of wedding planners in India. Despite their stark differences, both projects showcase completely different worlds— one of rural localities of Rajasthan and the other of the urban Indians and their wedding shenanigans.

The recently released trailer of ‘Made in Heaven’ season 2, shows how the series’ protagonists will balance personal and professional challenges and organise bigger, grander, and more colourful weddings. The series will explore the titular wedding planning company in Delhi and how they discover more about themselves while they cater to the rich and elite of Delhi.

'Dahaad', on the other hand, tells the story of a police investigation into 27 missing women from Rajasthan, all of whom were found dead under the same suspicious circumstances. 

Over the years Reema and Zoya, who now have their own production house Tiger Baby Films, have built a reputation of being associated with stories that are well researched and exceptionally written. Committed to creating onscreen characters that reflect the diversity of what it means to be an Indian woman. The duo rejects Bollywood’s tendency to pass judgement on a woman’s character and choices, which is something that runs through all their stories. As storytellers, their only focus is on finding the truth of the character and drawing our attention to a larger web of issues.
